Astonish Me! – Jeux

In May 1913, this demand brought into being two astounding works " Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and Jeux, Debussy's last orchestral masterpiece. Premiered at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival 2016, Patrick's reinterpretation of Jeux straddles jazz and contemporary music landscapes, faithfully capturing Debussy's ethereal sound world. This outstanding octet is joined by Mark Lotz on piccolo/flute and Max Grosch on violin. A world-class ensemble, completely at ease with each other **** ( Commissioned by Edinburgh Jazz Festival, through the Scottish Governments Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.
